>Saturday Morning Cartoons: G-dcast Spins Chanukah!

>Now that Thanksgiving is behind us and Black Friday is just a memory, it’s time to start thinking about the holiday. No, I am not talking about Christmas, I’m talking about Chanukah!

Chanukah starts next week, December 1st – December 9th, so I thought why not start the holiday season off on the the right path and find a little cartoon that explains what Chanukah is all about. It’s not just about presents, menorahs and latkes you know.

>Why No Meeting Minutes Posted Over the Last Several Months?

>Here’s a question that I thought I would throw out there for someone to answer, why haven’t there been any Meeting Minutes of the Middletown Township Committee posted on the Township’s website since the April 5th, 2010 Workshop meeting?

It’s now the end of November and the next Township Workshop meeting isn’t scheduled until December 6th, 7 months after the last posting of meeting minutes and 14 meetings ago. Why the delay in posting the minutes online? I can understand a 2 month delay, the minutes from the previous meetings need to be approved at the following months get together of the Township Committee, then a little time is added for posting of the minutes to the Townships website by the Clerk, but 7 months? I think that is a bit excessive, someone should be jumping on it, to get those minutes posted in the name of transparency soon.
Transparency will be a big issue in Middletown this coming year when the Township Committee reverts back to its previous 5-0 Republican super majority that was the norm for 16 years before Patrick Short was elected in 2006 and Sean Byrnes in 2007.
